I tried them a long time ago when DS was 4 mos and didn't care for them, but he was also VERY chubby then and we were dealing with BF blowout poops. I'm considering trying them again now that he's 2.8. He's very tall and thin now. I'd definately try the bikini cut this time. I'm considering trying a cuddle-in-one too. Any input on these? Where is your fave place to get them?

I love Bikini-cut Cuddlebuns. They are very trim and they fit both of my boys (they are now 10 months and 2 yrs 8 months). If you have a heavy wetter you will need a doubler (that is what I do for my baby because he soaks all of his diapers quickly--but my toddler doesn't need a doubler).

I love Cuddlebuns! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I've been trying like mad to find someone who can make me a bikini cut cuddlebuns using only organic cotton fabric (no exposed velour). I have followed at least 3 different leads and I keep hitting dead ends! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I used to make cuddlebuns for my dd's. It's the first cloth diaper I used. I thought they were adorable, very absorbant, but they are too bulky for my taste. They weren't the bikini cut ones though.

I really prefer the bikini cut. They were my first and probably favourite fitteds. I got all of mine from <a href="http://www.lilbabybuns.com/" target="_blank">http://www.lilbabybuns.com/</a>. Sophie makes great stuff!!! I really like my AIOs too.

Love the bikini cut ones! I used them on my toddler and now love how they fit on my baby! I like the way the fold-over works.

Do you know what she uses for the soaker? I have to have hemp fleece and have had trouble in the past finding a cuddlewahm who uses it.

CuddleBuns are the bulk of our stash, and I much prefer the bikini cut ones. When I was selling them, I pretty much only sold bikini cuts. When dd was a newborn I used the flannel newborn ones and the fit was great. I should have made the soakers thicker though cause she peed a lot!

very good fit on both my son's and I had favourite wahms that made them. Melissa at poshpunkins was my fav in the USA and Leslie in Canada (when she was a cuddlewahm)

I believe it BKT or sherpa. But feel free to contact her. She's open for customs and she may be able to help you out. She really is a nice mama.

I don't like them. I have a traditional cut and a bikini cut, I think they are both real bulky. I like the bikini cut better, out traditional cut CB hardly ever gets used at all.

I also like the bikini cut ones, but don't care for the bulk of the regular ones. Not too bad on a toddler, but defnitely too bulky on an infant IMO.<br><br>

I second Sophie at lilbabybuns! She is wonderful. The only "real" CB we have was from her and we love it, the others I've made myself. The only thing I don't like about CB is the exposed snaps on the inside. They always leave little marks on Alex which I hate! When I made mine I didn't make them one sized and I did them with hidden snaps. I love the fit on my 24lb son.
